Putting My Experience
Mike Coan was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1996 and served as Chairman of the Industry and Labor committee that handles all labor issues including the Department of Labor for 6 years. During Mike’s legislative career, he won Legislator of the Year from the NFIB, the Independent Insurance Agents of Georgia, the Georgia Restaurant Association, among others.
In 2010, He was appointed by Governor Sonny Perdue to lead the state agency known as The Subsequent Injury Trust Fund. In this role, he saved the state over 400 million dollars by managing the Fund like a business, streamlining functions and cutting out waste. He served concurrently under Governors Perdue, Deal and Kemp. Mike currently serves as Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Labor, having moved over to help the Department in December 2021.
“I am proud to have served our state at the pleasure of all three of Georgia’s Republican governors,” said Coan. “At this critical time in our history, we need an experienced conservative leader who understands how to run one of Georgia’s biggest agencies.”
Mike Coan serves on the Chairman’s Advisory Council for Workers Compensation and volunteers his time with a charity that raises funds to send children, whose parent has been killed or catastrophically injured, to the technical school or college of their choosing.
Mike has been happily married to Hope Coan from Effingham County for 24 years. They are the proud parents of three daughters, Autumn, Madison and Grace.
